"Hard Luck (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, #8)" Reviews
Decent and page turner, but not the hilarious book I expected.
Jeff Kinney has done it yet again. SPOILER ALERT
Greg is having friend problems... yet again. Rowley got a girlfriend and she thinks all the things Rowley and Greg do together are immature. She's taking all the attention away from Greg, and shaping Rowley into something that he's not at the same time! Greg misses all the things Rowley used to do for him... a lot. Rowley use to walk to school with greg and he looked out for dog poop, and carry Greg's bags. Now Rowley walks to school with, Abigail, his girlfriend, so Greg is now lacking the poop-scouting and the bag-carrying. Greg quickly finds a solution to his lack of baggage transportation... A roller bag! He gets to school as fast as a lightning bolt, but there are some serious dangers, like The Mingo Kids, from Greg's residence to the jail they named school. The Mingo Kids are basically animals.. but human. There extremely crazy and will attack if they feel threatened. Greg just came to his mom for help on transportation instead of getting attacked by little hooligans. She said of course she would drive him to school, but quickly caught on to the struggle for friendship that Greg and Rowley were going through. She (of course) gave motherly advice on how to handle the conversation but Greg totally tuned it out. Greg then finds himself in his moms closet and finds his Moms mothering inspiration... The Slumber Party Pals Books! Greg, becoming extremely fascinated in girl problem books, read hundreds of them and realized boy relationship and girl relationships are nothing alike. Greg started having memories of him and Rowley, he was soon missing him immensly. Greg then found the magic 8 ball. Who needs a best friend when you have this thing! Greg started using it for everything. Then he used it on a geography test and it let him down, he was again missing Rowley. Easter came right around the corner and it was a complete fiasco! When the Grandma was packing the eggs she put a ring from a relative that had passed the year before in the egg every one scavenged to find it, though no one could. Greg needed a friend more now than ever, if he doesn't have a family thats cool, he at least needs one decent friend. The following day when Greg was doing his daily reading of Slumber Party Pals, he found the ring. He decided to not tell anyone due to his families craziness. A week later Rowley and Abigail broke up. Abigail found a new boyfriend in a hurry and Greg could tell Rowley was hurt. Greg decided to let bygones be bygones and act like a true friend towards Rowley. Greg asked if Rowley wanted to sit with him and they became pals again. (:

Normally I don't like DOAWK books because I find the situations the main character Greg puts himself into annoying. However, I didn't mind this one. I think it is the best book in the series because he isn't fighting with his brothers or getting into stupid trouble. He is just going about his business and trying to figure out things as they arise. I have to day I enjoy the magic eight ball he finds and uses because it reminds me of my childhood. I loved that toy. Anyway, I am happy I read this book because it gave me a new outlook on DOAWK series.
He’s back! The Wimpy Kid is back!
The misadventures of Greg Heffley, a middle school student, continue to be a rip-roaring affair striking the funny bones of young and old alike everywhere. A web-comic-turned-novel, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck by Jeff Kinney, which is the eighth installment in the series, is one of the best in the series.
The world has gone crazy for the Wimpy Kid with good reasons. Jeff Kinney is not one of the best children’s writers, but he’s the best inhabiting planet Earth, at least during the time of the release of his latest book. And why say children when it is the adults who are having a good time with the series. The latest in the series has been waited with baited breath not only by children but also by adults as well.
Continuing the hilarious saga of Greg Heffley, Jeff Kinney in his inimitable style puts him in an awkward situation when his long-time best friend Rowley Jefferson ditches him over certain issues. Our hero Greg struggles to find new friends and the book revolves around his quest for a friend and other related issues. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck features more of the same fun stuff but with a lot more. It continues to tickle you with all the issues confronting a middle school student – fame, acceptance, friendship, rivalry, girls and others issues usually associated with students of the same age. What is really interesting about Jeff Kinney’s handling is the depth and humor with which he dealt with issues. To add passion to the story, the book also features cartoon illustrations on each page which is truly a commendable work.
Though flaunted as a children’s book, the Wimpy Kid series has found many following among grown-ups as well. May be, there’s a family even out there somewhere with the mother or father fighting with the kids to have the first read. Many of older folks have been closely following Greg all over. It is just not hilarious but insightful and sometimes, thought-provoking as well.
**** JANUARY 5TH UPDATE *****
Hard Luck was alright, it was a bit funny, but I found it to be a lot like The Ugly Truth, which is book 5. You see how Greg and Rowley aren't friends (again), there's a family reunion under way, and there's a sub plot of an older character. To top it off, it ends a similar way to book 5, with Greg and Rowley being friends, especially while Greg is friendless, and Rowley finds out that he is being "used" for something in the end. But besides the similarities, I found the book to be a pleasant read. It tickled my funny bone, and it had a happy ending.
